THIS WEEK’S BUSINESS PRESS POLL QUESTION
Log onto the Las Vegas Business Press website and let us hear your opinion on this week’s question
John TrasviÃ±a, assistant secretary of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, vowed at a recent meeting with local minority chamber officials that he would not allow landlords to use Arizona’s illegal immigration law to be used as a pretext for housing discrimination. Arizona’s law requires police officers to check the immigration status of anyone they reasonably suspect might be in the country illegally.
Do you believe that the federal government should ensure that landlords don’t use the law to check on renters’ or homebuyers’ immigration status?
